So Tidus dies soon after FF X-2...He doesn't wanna have a quiet life! ;)
Thanks for your work Pixel! Do your best for this! :) :) :)

Didnt the audio thing say they had a year together though? Unless there still was that year after the novella.

Audio is one year later FFX-2. Novella after few days ( if i understand correctly ). Tidus was resurrected by Yuna after his death. We have to wait for more informations!  :)

Perhaps the notion that the novella takes place immediately after X-2 might be referring to the introductory chapter:
Quote
Tidus is introduced to Paine, and gets a very brief explanation of the events of X-2, really just that they joined a group and journeyed together. Then they talk about the fact that Tidus hasn't changed in those 2 year.

And the rest of the novella probably takes place x months after the good ending or perfect ending.

子 = child
祈り = prayer... I figured that was Fayth

Is 祈り子 just Fayth?

According to wikipedia and FFWikia, 祈り子 as a whole is Fayth http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Fayth

That makes a bit more sense then.

This is quite a long first chapter. About a quarter left to translate.

Please bear with us for translation. It's not easy, and we aren't getting paid.

I personally have been busy with work, and I'm sure Pixel has his(her?) own things going ona as well. Just know you will probably not get this book in the US, so any translation at all is a big step. I'm currently working on chapter 2.

Yes, translation is not an expedient task. Both KaminaSan and Pixel are doing this in their own free time, so it's important we show our utmost gratitude and patience in the matter.

However, I will be intermittently updating the front novella page with new, integral information as time goes on.
If a chapter proves sufficient in worthwhile information, I'll make a summary section for it. I won't post every superficial detail, however.
Have no misgivings, you won't be missing out on any important information; you just have to be forbearing of it.

I'm very grateful for your dedication and I know this is free work.
I'll wait as much as needed but I really want to know if everything I read on the web is true.

FFX is my favorite game of all time, please excuse me if I seemed a little impatient.

What do you mean "on the web"?

If you have any doubts on what you've read, I'd be happy to answer them.

For example the disturbing sex-fayth method on tidus' headless corpse... :s
I've read that all over the web...

The speculation regarding necrophilia with Tidus's corpse came about as a result of very vague preliminary details on the sex-fayth method's presence in the novella.

The only details people had at first were the facts of Tidus dying, Yuna resurrecting him, and the possibility to use sex to make fayth. Stringing these three together, an unreasonable conclusion was reached that Yuna must have **** Tidus's dead body to revive him by making him a fayth.

As more information came to light, however, some things pointed towards this being implausible. Tidus's body disappeared after he died (as he was made of pyreflies), which rendered sex impossible, and the sex-fayth was told in a separate narrative. There is no plausibility to this theory anymore, of what scant reason it had to being with.


The sex-fayth method was used by a female summoner a thousand years prior to the events in the novella, in Machina War-era Zanarkand. Her intention was to create a fayth without having to sacrifice her guardian lover.
That is the only application and knowledge we have of the sex-fayth method in the story as of now.

I must admit I feel relieved, that was so sick.
Thanks for this detailed answer.

Can't wait to read the translation though ;)

When it comes to the controversial subjects, I will post the translations word for word. However, unless allowed, approved and allocated by the translators themselves, I will not post a fully translated manuscript.

No need to worry either way, though! You'll be getting the important information regardless.

Okay guys, I was browsing Mognetcentral today, and I came across, I think, this Japanese person who is attempting to speak English. He has a friend who has read chapters 3, 4 and 5, and has provided crudely translated summaries on their contents. I quote:

Quote
chapter 3

- Talking about new character Vakum (male) and Summoner Kushu (female). It's began when they woke up after they have sex.... (Oh... Nojima) They're on top floor of 1号吸排気ダクト.

- Kushu said there's man walking at the coast. He's picking up the ball from bag while looking at Kushu. Valum shouted that it's bomb!!

- The bomb exploded. Valum and Kushu escaped from the explosive range. Valum thought that he must kill that man, and the heretic mage... (who?)

For some reason, 号吸排気ダクト isn't translated. Valum and Kushu might be the guardian and summoner from the Boy's Side of the novel. Obviously, this is foreshadowing the use and existence of the island's bombs, and this other mysterious character.

Quote
chapter 4

- Gullwing gang're chatting on Celcius. From the radar, they saw the big storm that coming to southern of Besaid island. They tried to communicate with Yuna, but the communication device's unworkable with no reason. Shinra said he can't fix it because "I'm just a kid".

- Paine told everone that they must go to Besaid and tell villagers about the storm.

- Aniki (Rikku's brother) 's crying. He loved Yuna. But now Tidus came back... so there's no chance for Aniki anymore. Aniki refused to come to Besaid. He don't want to see Yuna with Tidus.

- Paine hesitated, she thought that the villagers may used to the storm. While they are chatting, suddenly the radar's unworkable.

- Shinra told that this engine had made 1,000 years ago, so it could be broken anytime. Nowadays Al-Bhed can't make a powerful engine like this. Their ancestor didn't leave any blueprint for them.

Back to the present time, a strong storm is approaching Besaid, and Shinra can't get a signal with Yuna. Of course, Aniki (Brother)'s jealous, and Shinra tells them that the Celsius is 1000 years old, and more powerful than any airship today.

Now guys, this is where it gets weird for me:

Quote
chapter 5

- Tidus's coming to explore the ship "Aurochs-Ace". He come to ship' cabin and found that room's luxury just like the room in hotel. (Others Besaid Aurochs member have decorated it for him and Yuna.) Tidus napped in that room.

- He woke up in the night. When he looked out through the window, he couldn't see Besaid coast. The ship had sailed out for a long way. That's shocked him.

- Tidus ran to the deck, Yuna in kimono's the one who controlled the ship. Yuna said sorry to keep you waited. At first Tidus's angry, but Yuna said she's the one who should be angry because she had waited for him 2 years! Tidus accepted and said sorry to her.

- Yuna said that his team (Besaid Aurochs members) told her to use this ship to stay with Tidus tonight. She said with shyness, Tidus also.

- Yuna said the storm's coming, they should moor the ship somewhere. Tidus tried to help Yuna control the ship, he had many knowledge about ship. He remembered the time when he was in Zanarkand, that he lived in the ship.

- But... from the aroma that he scent from Yuna's hair, it's turn him onnn!!! He invited Yuna to go to the cabin. Yuna tried to refused because they should moor the ship somewhere first, but Tidus still dragged her to the cabin anyway.

Tidus and Yuna are on their ship, and apparently Yuna can now pilot boats. Woo, more things that Yuna can do out of nowhere. At least they acknowledged that Tidus has experience with driving ships since he used to live on one. Also for some reason, the Besaid Aurochs said to Yuna to use the ship to spend some time with Tidus. Also, the first sign of Yuna being 'angry' with him, and Tidus' first sign of 'constant apologising'.

The last bullet point is what gets me the most, though... Tidus tries to help her pilot the boat, but he can't because... he's aroused by the scent of Yuna's hair. Then he drags her to the cabin for some most likely private time, ignoring the fact that they're in the middle of the ocean current and could get swept away. Tidus, for a supposed experienced sailor, you sure don't remember the basic safety rules.

So... yeah. The reason they got shipwrecked and went through all that swimsuit-blitzbomb sexy-fayth resurrection stuff... is because Tidus got **** because of Yuna's hair.

God, Tidus. What have they done to you?

Obviously, the best resort is waiting for KaminaSan and Pixel to provide their sides of the story, but given that this person is most likely Japanese, I think we've had a shot of what's to come and be expected.

Wanna know stuff? Ask me. "I know everything."

I somehow can't answer? "... I'm just a kid."
